moral about running up huge deficits, about out of control welfare bills. if we don't deal with these problems the whole country will be poor. i think we should listen to the words of george carey, the former archbishop of canterbury who said this. the churches should be aware of the dangers of blindly defending a gargantuan welfare budget that increases politician would cut as a matter of economic common sense. i think serious politicians have to engage in this and that should go for everybody. >> ed miliband. [shouting] >> mr. speaker, i join my honorable friend and the prime minister in congratulating team gb on a brilliant performance at the window limits but as the threat of floods passes there's thousands out of their homes. some are still underwater and hundreds of businesses and farms are still struggling to recover. the committee on climate change, the house of commons library and the uk statistical authority have all now said that government investment and flood defenses has fallen. in the light of this an event we have seen, does the prime minister think it's rig
happen to like, is going anywhere. >> what do you like about it? >> the deficit is going down considerably. >> is that from fiscal reform or from the economy growing? >> i think it is both. the sequester, which i did not happen to think is an intelligent approach, has been effective. have beenwe increasing revenue because of the economic recovery and the composition of the recovery. those two things and some others have resulted in the deficit coming down considerably. it is projected at 3.1% of gdp. it is way down. it was over 9%. we should step back and recognize that is good progress. you could debate who is responsible, but it is good progress. second, some of the initiatives, let's just take infrastructure, are so vitally needed. both sides agree, it is just how to pay for it. it is not going anywhere. senator johnson is right. it is an election year. this budget will just sit there and not be acted on. >> senator, you are saying it does not address the big issues, which you mentioned, entitlement spending. there were no big numbers around cutting social security or any o

of the apparel tax cut coming awake, the sequestered going into affect, and other sharp sources of deficit-reduction. we don't have any of that in 2014. consumers are more be leveraged, have been by some measure on record since 1980. and as a result, i think we are in a stronger position for consumer spending this year. what we would like to see is investment following that. national savings is an important issue in its own right. i don't think it is an important determinant of investment in the short run. i think it is an important determinant of the sustainability of our overall economy of the medium and long run. net national savings including the federal sector of the corporate sector and the individual sector which has actually risen a lot and lost couple of years. as a result we have seen our current account deficit as share of the economy fall to lost his been since the 1990's. i think that is the direction and the movement you would want to see for sustainability. terms of the of the policy issues you raised we're looking at a wide range of basic health, you know, continue to stren

the deficit. most important of all, it is about energy independence for our country. it is about working with canada and producing energy in this country so that we get our energy here locally rather than having to get it from the middle east. that is what americans want. they want us to be energy secure in this country. to do that, we need to produce more energy like we are doing in my state of north dakota and montana across the border. movepipeline would mode -- that loyal as well as canadian oil. it is about producing oil here, or getting it from our closest friend and neighbor, canada, rather than being dependent on the middle east. classification you to have to wait on a pipeline, how safe israel transportation of these products versus pipeline transportation? is it.that we are becoming more energy secure. it is great. it is jobs and what people want. to go with that energy, we need infrastructure. that infrastructure includes pipelines as well as moving products safely by train or truck. the keystone xl will take 500 trucks a day off rose in western north dakota. it is a safety is

it will be necessary. one of the goals is to have a deficit neutral budget by 2015. it will be hard for them to achieve that. decreaseto either public spending or privatization. one thing i am concerned about, it looks like we're interested in a transformation right now to more of a sovereign or hedge funds investor base. that is a difficult transition for that government. they will government demanding guarantees. it would also be some of the things attached to it, which may the bond issue doesn't work out and they cannot put together the right budget, people knuckle under and they have to jack up taxes. what would that mean for these kinds of properties? rican's who goo to this resort. will the business the fine regardless? >> a good point. tourism is one of the safe that's right now. there are continued -- everybody isees the economic turn down not about to stop. it will be a difficult time in the next years. that may attract more tourism. tourists is one thing. has he been successful with his plan to attract hedge funders, not to invest their but to move their? complicated more situation and even h

that is buried and driving me crazy which is the decline in the deficit. nobody wants to hear anything about it, because it went from the trillions and you know the president could say we have cut spending here, and maybe because of the gridlock, but there is not a lot of supply of bonds. how about saying that. >> well, there is a decline in the deficit, but i don't know how much of that s is due to th proceeds of fannie mae and freddie mac. >> and the fdic had a good trade in there. good trading by them. >> and we have not talked about it often enough, but we have talked about the lawsuit initiate initiated by perry and berkowitz and ackman owning the common which is up sharply, but they are way past paying them back. and the president -- >> and the president has said that the common -- >> and the third amendment is all in place meaning that all of the profits are e sweeping to the government helping the e deficit. >> it is a windfall due to the rising pricing in housing, but the president said that the common should go to the treasury and he made that statement, and the fdic knew that the pre
